in florida. then vice-presidential candidate paul ryan speaks at ai rally in new hampshire. after that, the 1984 presidential debate between ronald reagan and walter mondale. >> tomorrow on "washington journal" two presidential candidates cake cake your calls and questions. jill stein from the green party, and the author of "party matters," virgil goode. >> it is the number one priority, and it is the most untouchable thing. that is going to cause more trouble than any other prop problem we have currently in the united states. getting medicare costs under control is the number one thing. >> you say we also surcharge smokers? >> yes. >> for their medicare coverage. where did you get that idea? >> it came from us. i'm the person that put it in the memo, but i didn't have to fight very hard for it. i have been accused of being incensetive, which i guess i probably am. i mean, i'm not really a democrat, but i'm certainly similar to the democrats in that thinking. if you have it, someone has to pay for it. >> we're not the only ones making arguments like this. the task force that was heade
a big deal out of it. web video this morning, you played paul ryan's comments. you know, i don't -- if president obama and his campaign team had a choice, i think they would rather joe biden not have used that phrase in relation to the last four years. that said, i think the life cycle of a gaffe now, andrea is so small it kind of rises up and becomes a huge thing for 15 minutes or one day, and then it disappears. my guess is, at 9:01 p.m. tonight when the debate starts, this will not be as big a deal and there will be new things to talk about, new issues to digest, again, not a great moment for joe biden and clearly one the white house would have rather he not have said. i just don't know that, you know, in two weeks time we're talking about it. >> all right. we'll see what -- whether there's a new gaffe or two or three to replace that one tonight. thank you very much. see you later. joining me in denver, stephanie cutter, deputy campaign manager for the president's re-election effort. where were you when you heard joe biden yesterday? >> i don't remember. because we don't see
at st. pete in st. petersburg, florida. last night a very confident mitt romney and paul ryan whipped up their base in rural virginia and as much as the romney campaign is determined not to cloak their actual fireworks it wasn't exactly subtle. >> last night was an important night for the country because people got to -- got the chance to cut through all the attacks and counterattacks and all of the theatrics associated with a campaign and instead were able to listen to substance. >> romney also picked up the official endorsement of the nra. we didn't know they weren't supporting him. whose supporters were of course a major presence at that very raucous rally. see all the orange there? the campaign is trying to capitalize on momentum with new ads releasing four over the last 24 hours including a new ad in ohio promising a million new manufacturing jobs and a testimonial from a former unlv star greg anthony a college basketball analyst for cbs sports. >> i voted for barack obama. i thought he would be a centrist. i really lost faith in him. i'm supporting mitt romney. he is a no excuse ki
? is biden going to hold his own with paul ryan? >> it's high drama. you tune in because first of all everybody anticipates the possible gaffe that could come from joe biden. although in these circumstances he tends not to slip up. >> we got to go? >> they raised the bar for paul ryan. >> we'll see you next week in kentucky. throw it back to wolf right now. back to wolf blitzer. >>> pete, thanks very much for some unsolicited advicadvice. right now we're waiting on the president in madison, wisconsin. a huge crowd is there. will the president be on fire? will he be cool? will he be hot? standby. we're going to hear he's getting ready to start speaking there. we'll take him live when we come back. but things are starting to turn around because of business people like you. and regions is here to help. with the experience and service to keep things rolling. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. and sounds vying for your attention. so we invented a warning you can feel. introducing the all-ne
was in his wheel house when he was talking about the economy. >> paul ryan is cutting 716 for medicare. the exact same number in his budget which was passed by the republican house and the president never mentioned it. >> it does remind you that the last debate that mitt romney was seven months ago and the last debate that barack obama had was four years ago. and the people he's used to sparring with are reporters. >> how did he prepare? how did the president prepare for this? >> we got 45 minutes in before we got a ryan budget mentioned. mitt romney made the choice to put ryan on the ticket. when we look at where the polls started to separate before the convention, right around when ryan was put on the ticket. when do the numbers on medicare and the polling start to go upside down for the republicans? when ryan is put on the ticket. yet we get 45 minutes through the debate before paul ryan is mentioned. he's the incarnation of the modern republican party which will inherit the power that you give to mitt romney since they will be governing from the house most likely. that is the key t
to be great. if nothing else i guarantee you it will be very entertaining to watch joe biden and paul ryan. and there again, i think there is an opportunity to -- i think romney's gotten some deserved momentum out of -- he had a very strong performance. he's gotten a momentum. i think his campaign is trying to figure out how to keep that momentum going into next week. the debate might be where that momentum is blunted a little bit. joe biden is going to say look, paul, how much time do you need? here's a white board. here's a pen. how much time do you need to do the math? we're here for you. let's work it out. >> hey rich, how much in terms of paul ryan, how much do you think is resting on his shoulders? how do you think he's going to fare against joe biden? he's a lot younger, doesn't have as much debate experience. >> that's not true. they're both members of congress. they have a lot of debate -- that's what you do in congress whether it's in committee or on the floor. i think they will both be more skilled, frankly, than either of the two presidential candidates who did not have that ki
. >>> the candidates wasting no time getting their shots in after the debate. the spin from joe biden and paul ryan coming up. if you are one of the millions of men who have used androgel 1%, there's big news. presenting androgel 1.62%. both are used to treat men with low testosterone. androgel 1.62% is from the makers of the number one prescribed testosterone replacement therapy. it raises your testosterone levels, and... is concentrated, so you could use less gel. and with androgel 1.62%, you can save on your monthly prescription. [ male announcer ] dosing and application sites between these products differ. women and children should avoid contact with application sites. discontinue androgel and call your doctor if you see unexpected signs of early puberty in a child, or, signs in a woman which may include changes in body hair or a large increase in acne, possibly due to accidental exposure. men with breast cancer or who have or might have prostate cancer, and women who are, or may become pregnant or are breast feeding should not use androgel. serious side effects include worsening of an enlarged
before you get into office. on the other side we all know paul ryan can do the math and he can spend the whole 90 minutes talking about -- >> of course paul ryan isn't the candidate for president. >> paul ryan will get his chance. >> if you endorsed budget, please explain to us how that works. >> well, at least there's a budget. >> he was for and then against it. >> so how should romney answer? our debate all this week has been your argument is he should avoid substance at all costs. so how should romney answer her question then? >> the good news is that the rules don't allow him to speak more than a few seconds. >> actually, two minutes i think. >> so move on to the next issue, the next issue. we're looking for details. you are not going to get details tonight. >> let's be clear, there's 15-minute segments. they have two minutes to respond to the question and then jim lehrer's going to narrate the back and forth. there should be enough time. >> one thing i want to say though is that this is going to be for a bunch of young americans their first chance to vote. a lot of the young ame
, the takers versus the makers as paul ryan said. >> he misspoke on that. >> he spent 17 days doubling down, defending that remark. suddenly when he realized poll numbers were tanking, he comes out on fox news and says i didn't really mean that. >> the rasmussen polls out today show that mitt romney has a nice bounce from that debate. >> three states. hang on a second. but jedadai, mitt romney said he was wrong on the 47%. i think that was pretty good of him to say that. show as ls a lot of character. has president obama said he was wrong when he made the statement that he was wrong when he said you didn't start that business? i don't think i heard him take that back. >> the reason he couldn't have to do that is the media doesn't hold barack obama accountable. the media only holds republicans accountable when they make mistakes and misspeak. mitt romney did have character in saying that. he wanted to make sure those 47% of americans, some of whom don't pay federal income taxes but are supporting governor romney and don't support a message of big government -- >> the reason why he didn't say
from now. >> and this sets up the vice presidential debate. paul ryan and joe biden. >> that is going to be -- >> people love to say these vice presidential debates don't matter. go back to 2004, they do matter. >> i think this one does. >> and they matter because george w. bush had a very bad first debate. but you know what? dick cheney, sitting down, stemmed that tide and actually gave republicans a reason -- everybody was painting dick cheney as darth vader, as they always do. he sat down and he just absolutely demolished john edwards. it looked like there was an adult and there was a child in the room. and it actually gave the bush campaign new life. >> i think paul ryan represents, i mean, really specific ideas. >> right. >> you know? it's going to be -- >> i think it's -- and i think it's going to be great. you know, the pressure, actually, i would have never believed i would have said this 24 hours ago. it's going to be on joe biden because they can't have two bad debate performances in a row. then suddenly a one-night story becomes a narrative. right. >> it's a different ball
president will be much more effective in his debate with paul ryan than the president was in his debate with mitt romney because the vice president is used to getting beaten up. >> well, that's not a really high bar, is it, now. gene robinson, you wrote "obama's off night gives romney an opening." and i do think that joe biden has been out there and is used to getting beat up. and i think will do very well in the debate along with paul ryan. but your column, talking about obama's off night. can you help us out here? we're trying to figure out what happened to president obama. where was he? >> where was he? that's the question. it was really, you know, you kind of watched the thing unfold and just wondered when it was -- when the debate was going to start, basically, because -- and when the president was going to, you know, become president obama again. all the stuff you guys said in the last segment is probably right about that performance. and it's not that unusual, if you look historically for an incumbent president to have a rough time out of the blocks on the debates. and they tend
in the american idea. only 30% want the welfare state. >> so, again, just context for our viewers that was paul ryan, this is a speech from last november. the whole speech has been on youtube since last fall. so my question to you, howie kurtz, are there really substantive points to be scored here by drudging up these all videos? >> there can be. i don't have any problem with it, people on either side drudging up old videos. it helps if the video you're drudging up has never been seen or heard before, then it has some shock value. there can be substantive and revealing comments in what people say when they think the spotlight is not on them. but in the case of this particular obama speech at hampton university in virginia in 2007, he delivered it in front of a bunch of reporters. cameras there. the surprise factor has been lost here. >> you covered the media. as we mentioned it right wing radio, right wing conservative television today, pointing at the -- it is the mainstream media, this is all the mainstream media, my question is, their ratings are high, they bring in the big bucks, aren't the
-term. that's the plan that i put forward, and by the way, the idea came not even from paul ryan or senator wyden who's a co-author of the bill in the senate, but also from bill clinton's chief of staff. this is an idea that's been around a long time. hey, let's see if we can't get competition into the medicare world so that people can get the choice of different plans at lower costs, better quality. i believe in competition. >> moderator: okay. obama: jim, if i can just respond very quickly. first of all, every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. and private insurers have to make a profit. nothing wrong with that, that's what they do. and so you've got higher administrative costs plus profit on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies. and over time if tradition
is the gift that keeps on giving. >> so is paul ryan toso extent. aheadernor. >> it's been exactly one year since steve jobs passing. d unsolicited advice today is f all of the mavericks in america, all the oplehat walk against the crowd, all e people who disagree with everybod t a classroom th says i do agree with what'savicks have me amergreat. if we lose our mavericks, we i unsolicited advice for themavericks, you keep it up. >> are there mavericks out there today? always hear about steve jobs. >> are they in montana? >> actually more coming to montana. and we have our own to begin with. >> he's a maverick in and of himself. he really is. >> this is what is different about america. we actually revere the mavericks. if you go everywhere else in the world, they doept. they wonder what's wrong with that person not conforming. we like the nonconformists. >> and we can start great businesses out of a garage. >> and john mccain the maverick probably would have done better in the presidential race. >> absolutely. i was just going to say that. you bring up mavericks, i'm not going to say it's ea
and congressman paul ryan square off on october 11th. then it is round two for mr. obama and governor romney five days later. allison. >> so, sarah, lots to talk about, important things like taxes, deficit, all this, jobless rates, but also talk about big bird and it caught fire. it's amazing. what was this about? >>reporter: i think it was one of those things that somebody could latch on to because there weren't a lot of those moments as we talked about, but this was one. it came up in a discussion, as you mentioned, about the deficit, it is definitely getting the most attention on social network. take a look at this. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidize to pbs, i'm going to stop other things. i love pbs, i love big bird, i actually like you too, but i'm not going to -- >>reporter: within minutes of that comment, big bird was trending on twitter with 17,000 mentions per minute and a parody account called fired big bird wracked up more than 20,000 followers. one last note here, moderator jim lehrer may have taken the most criticism coming out of last night's debate. some reviews f
for years, and that paul ryan has voted for. >> stephanie: yeah. >> i hope in the next debate that if -- i mean certainly governor romney does not intend to bring this up. i thought what was lacking last night is a discussion about women's health care. >> stephanie: exactly. you talked about the women's vote in colorado. colorado in againal important for the election how are things looking right now? >> colorado is a swing state. for about six months it has been a one to two point advantage for the president. couple of weeks ago the president went up to three points ahead, and then just yesterday i heard there was a five-point poll, the president ahead of the governor. so i think -- like every place, the president is making steady progress here. he is here again this morning with another rally, and i expect we're going to be seeing a lot more of this. it really is kind of ground zero here. >> stephanie: absolutely. representative diana degette, good to talk to you. thank you so much. >> thank you. take care. >> stephanie: i love her.
